The Associate Editor operates at the space between idea generation and action, collaborating with the senior editor to organize, produce, and publish trade books and bookazines for brands like Time, Life and People.
Who you are:
• A connector: You know how to present ideas to a big group – and connect with people one-on-one to move a project forward. You have a built in community of peers and know who to call on when freelance work needs to be assigned
• Deadline-obsessed: You know how to manage your own time – and how individual tasks contribute to a larger project
• A forecaster: You can’t live if you’re not connecting the dots from pop culture to news to policy and thinking about how trends shape our world
• Visual: You think about how to tell a story visually, and how to use pictures to complement words
• An innovator: You have 3 years of experience in publishing – and a proven track record of taking smart risks and generating real results

The job:
• Draft and present proposals to brand publishers with a focus on project criteria, outlines, specifications and book budgets. Establish and identify needs and standards for manuscript development, photo, and design
• Collaborate with the design team to create meaningful art to complement a story and supervising photography
• Manage editorial workflow and team deadlines and schedules
• Work with counterparts at magazine and website brands to identify brand requirements and to build and maintain brand relationships
• Be responsible for the content, quality, and accuracy of assigned book projects, collaborating with the senior editor on key approval checkpoints like proposals, design, manuscript, layouts and covers
